Fair point, but have you ever suffered from the 'phantom double-click'?
Almost every Microsoft optical mouse I've had has gone this way in the
end. Did I just get a dodgy batch or have other people found this?


Ah, I haven't tried a MS optical mouse. I haven't seen that behaviour
in the ones I do have though. These are Logitech and some that are in
a notebook add ons pack - don't know who makes them but I've got about
5 or 6 knocking around.

I am only human, please forgive me if I make a mistake it is not deliberate.
PLEASE DON'T drink and drive it's not clever, it's just stupid.
